The Digest Enthusiast Book Six

The Digest Enthusiast Book Six arrived at my house a couple of days ago, and it's great, as usual.  Start with the cover.  How can you go wrong with a gorilla on the cover?  And the contents are equally good.  So far I've read the interview with Edd Vick, the synopses of the stories in Manhunt, and the review of the card sets annotated by Max Allan Collins.  Great stuff.  You know you need this, so get a copy ASAP.

• Digest News Previews of Rick Ollerman’s Down & Out: The Magazine #1, Karen Valentine’s Betty Fedora #4, Pulp Literature #15, The Pulpster #26, our joint venture with Uncle B. Publications, Pulp Modern, and much more.

• Interviews with Edd Vick (Analog, Asimov’s)* and B.K. Stevens (AHMM).

• Manhunt 1953 #1–4 synopses by Peter Enfantino of the greatest crime digest ever.
